Complaints of antisocial behaviour lead to legal action

An interim Antisocial Behaviour Order (ASBO) has been granted against Sharon Aitken (42) of Carlyle Gardens, Haddington following an application to Edinburgh Sheriff Court by East Lothian Council.

The court was presented with details of the alleged antisocial behaviour of Ms Aitken which included shouting, swearing and using threatening, intimidating, aggressive or abusive language or behaviour in and near her property in Haddington.

The terms of the ASBO prohibits Ms Aitken from behaving in a manner that causes alarm or distress to neighbouring residents including repeatedly banging or kicking doors within her residence. She is also prohibited from shouting, swearing or using threatening, intimidating, aggressive or abusive language or behaviour towards any employee of East Lothian Council by any means including electronic messages, telephone or written correspondence.

A council spokesperson said:

"A number of complaints were made about Ms Aitken’s behaviour at a couple of properties within Carlyle Gardens, Haddington. Despite repeat visits from members of the Safer Communities team and Police Scotland her behaviour continued to cause distress to others and so appropriate legal action resulting in an Interim ASBO being issued to her was pursued."
